Footworks Youth Ballet presents Peter and the Wolf and Classical Symphony April 21 2pm/5pm

April 21, 2018


Ventura’s Footworks Youth Ballet is proud to present PETER AND THE WOLF by Sergei Prokofiev. Come see this lively performance with the usual characters—the Wolf, Peter, Grandfather, the Bird, the Cat, and Ducks—as well as leaping Frogs, Villagers, Squirrels and Hunters. The story takes an unexpected twist at the end with Artistic Director Kirsten Oakley’s entertaining interpretation of this well-known children’s classic.

Along with PETER AND THE WOLF will be a special performance of Prokofiev’s CLASSICAL SYMPHONY, a Balanchine-inspired ballet in the Neoclassical style. Choreographed by Kirsten Oakley’s friend and mentor Yvonne Mounsey, who danced in George Balanchine’s New York City Ballet, it showcases a more sleek and modern style based in classical ballet but features increased energy and speed, pared-down sets and costumes, and less reliance on a story. 

Tickets: $22
